    for Matt Jones and the Arkansas Razorback. I sure do wish I had been wrong in my predictions, but I knew there was no way we were beating LSU this year. Did anyone besides me see this season going so far down the drain so early in the season?

    Yes, I knew at best they would probably go 6-5 but that required beating South Carolina which they failed to do.

    The consensus on the Pigpen Bulletin Board is that Wommack needs to be fired as the defensive coordinator and someone else, such as Butch Davis, brought in. Of course, there are those who are calling for Houston Nutt's head but that ain't gonna happen for at least 2-3 years even if he doesn't get things turned around.

    An interesting scenario I read would be to bring in Butch Davis as the DC for 2-3 years until Frank Broyles retires and then Nutt would become the AD and Davis the head coach.

    From what I understand, under his new contract, he cannot actually be fired; only promoted to AD. Am I incorrect about this?

    I will say that I don't think this season is any of the coach's fault. I think they lost more players than they expected to and were in a rebuilding year. Certainly the recruited freshman class they had this was solid and if this trend continues, not only will they be back next year, but I think they have an opportunity to be national contenders.

    The disappointing thing was that the youngsters on defense showed little, if any, improvement over the course of the season. I agree with those that say that Wommack has to go.

    I don't know about the details of Nutt's contract. I think it was for 10 years and he got a 2 year pass to rebuild the team after losing so many seniors and early leaving juniors.
